In this life, there will be plenty of times when you haven't a clue about what to do next. Unexpected things will happen. Sometimes, you may find yourself totally disconnected for long periods. But then there will be other times when you feel like you're on top of the world. That is the case always with feelings. They are quite mutable, changing frequently and sometimes for no reason at all.
Then there are the absolute truths of life that we find and hold. When our truth conflicts with our emotions, life can be like a thunderstorm. But poetry is a way through that storm of what I want versus what I need, what I believe versus what I see, what I think and what I know. It was through re-reading many of my poems that I found my way through emotional turmoil. I hope that you will go try a little today. Even if you don't write it, look up some poetry and let your imagination go wild. Happy reading!
